    1. right from the opening pages of this work, you get a sense of stifled expression, of set ways and things not to be broken. the "Clan Taboo" applying to relationships mentioned almost at the outset and the expectant nature of Quiauh's punishment for her transgression of over a decade ago is a gripping entree.Chimal is a different sort of character, though - Chimal Junior, I mean. The obvious inference is that the relationship - the forbidden, taboo, hither too unthinkable relationship has somethi [...]

    2. Captive universe is a rather short novel about an Aztec young man whose restless and inquisitive spirit makes him dare to deny tradition and fears and start discovering the real world around him. What he discovers is something he could never have imagined or believed. but we, readers, must have expected just by looking at the front cover! And that is my first major complaint of the novel! Maybe this would have had more of a kick if I didn't already know what's going on but we are being shown and [...]

    3. He's a member of an Aztec tribe who live in an isolated valley. There has been no contact with the outside world for as long as anyone can remember. No one seems very curious to find out more.But the hero notices weird stuff he can't explain. (I mean, weirder than the fact that it isn't safe to go out at night because of the snake-headed goddess, Coatlicue, who prowls in the woods). He watches the sun as it goes down, and there's always this bizarre flash just as it disappears from view. Now wha [...]

    4. Sometimes a book goes in a circular and almost wave like rhythm, Chimal the main character is deftly drawn with a beautifully pragmatic eye, I first read this when I was barely a teenager, it was one of the books that made me long to write, I won't hit you with the plot because somewhat like the Matrix if you know what is coming it lessens the whole story, but its a rough and tumble journey through the world the hero inhabits I am grinning as I write the words because This was the very first boo [...]

    5. Brilliant old school sci-fi with enough twists n turns and big ideas to keep you turning the pages until the end. This was recommended to me by my brother in law and he was bang on the money, great book. What starts off as a tale of ancient Aztecs terrorised by a real god ends up as a claustrophobic epic set aboard a vast colony ship heading towards the promised land. Very well written with economy and wit a must for any sci-fi collection.

    6. Read this to appease my other half cos I read some sci-fi and he's a huge Harrying Harrison fan. It was an ok book. Struggled with the After names but once I got past that, the story was quite enjoyable and easy to read. A clever idea. Almost felt a bit disappointed with the open endwhat happens to everyone?!? :-)

    7. Кажущаяся теперь, спустя столько лет, очень наивной, тем не менее весьма интересная книга с задумкой, котороая впоследствии нашла отголоски у многих фантастов — корабль к другой звезде размером с планету, на путешествие которого к точке назначения уходят сотни лет и покол [...]

    8. Meno male che non ho visto la copertina originale (edizione in lingua inglese) del romanzo, altrimenti lo spoiler sarebbe galattico.Quindi metto la recensione in parte sotto spoiler. Nel complesso il romanzo ha un certo interesse, alla fine però restano alcune domande sulle scelte che l'autore ha fatto nella costruzione dello stesso.(view spoiler)[Partendo dal fatto che è certamente un romanzo di SF perchè è un Urania, l'idea di una valle isolata tra le montagne, abitate da due villaggi sepa [...]

    9. Young Atztek leaves village to discover that the world he lives in is artificial. A generation starship. I very probably have read this before, everything seemed so entirely predictable. But very good. Of course he saves the day when he, as the First Arriver redirects the ship back to Proxima Centaury. The ending is great. The girl he met with the nice name Watchman Steel in the end declines his offer to become his woman. She prefers to be what she was raised to be - a watchman.

    10. Mediocre science fiction formula novel by Harry Harrison using post-Apocalyptic, neo-Aztec, Century-Ship themes.

    11. Hackneyed concept but with a fresh enough coat of paint to make it worthwhile. It kept my interest throughout what with the fast-paced developments.
